Beginning the week of August 27th students in my class will participate in benchmark screenings provided by Fast Bridge Learning. Fast Bridge is District 157-Cís universal screening instrument. This assessment will be administered in the fall, winter and spring to help teachers determine which students are likely to meet the end of the year learning goals, which students may require intervention and help to determine advanced and honors placements for the following school year. This computer based assessment measures performance in reading and math. Individual fall results will be sent home at the beginning of October after all students have been tested. I look forward to working with your child this school year.
Please see my attached newsletter for all information this week. Thanks for emptying your child's take home folders each night. Have a great week!
We will be eating a healthy snack

Instead of a Mon.-Fri. schedule we follow a TIGER schedule for all of our specials. This helps eliminate a student from missing the same special since most days of school that are off fall on a M or F. The following is our TIGER schedule:
Please note we will have gym every day so your child needs to have gym shoes daily.

Please see our newsletter for our "I Can's" for this week:
What is an "I Can" statement?
You will noticed posted in our classroom are "I Can" statements. You will also see these on my newsletter. An "I Can" statement is a simplified sentence based off of the Common Core learning standards. These simplified sentence help the students understand their learning targets for the week. Each week your child reads our "I Can" statements to help them become more responsible for their learning and more reflective on their own work.
